I did not attend last night’s meeting but I received a report from people who did attend.
The good news is the meeting was again held in the larger room where citizens could attend. The bad news is some citizens could not hear everything because microphones were still not used. I hear one resident loudly pointed that out.
More good news: the Pledge of Allegiance was recited.
More bad news: The citizens present still had no idea what the Board was voting on. No minutes or financial information was available to the public.
More good news: Police Chief Kemp handed out both a December monthly police report and an annual report. His department handled 501 calls for service and 78 calls to assist other agencies.
Wow! Transparency and it didn’t hurt a bit.
Learn anything Mayor Caisley? Is transparency too difficult? Maybe the NEXT Mayor will understand citizens have a right to know how their money is spent!
